No One Will Remember Anyway

The Christmas Season is upon us and it is always an interesting time of year. Some people love the Christmas season and all the activities it brings but others dread to see it come. I guess there are many different reasons but working as a 911 dispatcher for many years, it amazes me to see the number of people who are depressed due to lack of money during this time of year. Some people can not take it any longer and you can put two and two together to figure out the outcome. I'll just say it is not good. You would think that I would remember that but I have found myself down and out on more than one occasion. But then my mama told me some good news.

Hello Sanity! I have missed you...

I cannot believe that it has been several months since I have blogged! I do miss it and think of posting from time to time but life has been a bit crazy here lately. Not in a bad way, but in a good way that I am going to share more about soon. New life changes, new hobbies, new accomplishments, new projects, yep I am going to have a lot to share in the days to come. But today I want to remind you of something that I needed to be reminded of but did not even realize it. Pull up a chair and lets have one of those "mama/ child" conversations.

Philippines Sharing Begins NOW!

Wonder what the new blog background is all about? Airplane? Clouds? If you have been hanging around my blog much in the past few months, you will remember that I went on a trip to Cebu, Philippines to distribute shoe boxes with Operation Christmas Child. Some of you may have been around for my journey as I was getting ready to go. I also promised to share about the trip here once I returned, well I am ready! Everyone told me that it would take me some time to process everything that I seen and done in order to share with others but I didn't believe them. Well, they were right! It took me a week just to get my sleep back on schedule! But enough about that, it is time for some pictures and stories- God's stories! [...]

College Class Organization

I am currently taking classes online through Liberty University and I thought it may be useful to others if I share how I organize my class work and keep up with all the deadlines. While I am taking my classes online, this would also work for any students who are taking classes on campus. Being a full time student means you are doing a lot of work and if you do not stay on top of it all it can overwhelm you-in return, bad grades. But with organization, self discipline, and lots of study you are sure to be on the deans list semester after semester.[...]

My Home Was Falling Apart!

Homemade bread & brownies!
In today's culture, the home is often overlooked. It's "old fashioned" to be a stay at home mom, cook cakes from scratch, quilt, garden, or a lot of other things. We live in the world of "fast" and "convenient" but for me and my family "fast and convenient" wasn't working. It was taring apart our marriage, ruining our kids behavior and hurting us physically. Allow me to explain. [...]

I've Gone To Far

I can't believe I just did that!
What was I thinking!?
Why can't I think before I speak!?
I have done it now, I've gone to far.
No one will ever love me.
I am not worth loving.

And on and on it goes. Do you ever talk to yourself like this? I do. But guess what, we can't listen! And here is why! [...]

Two To Go

Can you believe that June is almost gone!!?? Only two more days till we hit July wide open. I must admit that I LOVE this time of year. The 4th of July did not mean much to me until several years ago. Then after leaving the country this year, I see how truly blessed I am to live here. I will say that I really appreciate and respect our men and women who protect us every day.

But despite the 4th of July plans that I am making and all the decorating that I am doing with flags and red, white and blue colors, I am really excited about July for another reason. Wonder what? [...]
